"I do not want to sleep" is an interactive story about a child who doesn't want to go to bed at night, but just wants to play!
It is the last title in the My Tales collection. Like the rest of the collection, "I do not want to sleep" is an interactive story in which you can customize the character's face, listen to the story and play with some hidden elements in the pages. In addition, children can access a simple black and white notebook, with all the scenes from the story, which they can color with their fingers. Each title in the My Tales collection is fully bilingual. The stories are written and spoken in Spanish and English, so you can easily choose the language.
All the stories in the collection are mainly about minor problems we face everyday as parents in our children's education, and aim to serve as tools to treat these crossroads in a fun and entertaining way.
"When we started with 'The cloud child,' which was the first title in this collection, all we wanted was to make an app to show our daughter, Blanca, the dangers of not watching her surroundings and always being in the clouds. Blanca has Down's syndrome and at that time, for us, her inattention was her main problem and what worried us. From there, Reyes, her mother, wrote the story and I illustrated it, but as we realized it was also difficult to identify with her character, it became an interactive app and we invented it so that the face of the character could be changed, and in this case, we put in Blanca.
Then came the moment when Blanca needed to wear glasses, but she constantly removed them, so since we needed a reason to convince her to that to wear them was super fun, we created the second story, 'Glasses,' written by our friend, Lucia Gandia, and illustrated by another good friend, Terelo. And then ... The tantrums that you can imagine, led to 'Goodbye angers,' also written by Reyes and illustrated by our friend, Fran Pons.
This time, already with Susana around (Blanca's little sister), we faced the problem that they are a pair of playful kids who sleep in the same room, and the truth is that there was no way to make them stop for the night. This is a subject to deal with for years. In fact, we have been working in the app for several years, without exaggeration. It has been a fully interactive experience, because they have been very active on all the scenes in the story, choosing what they wanted to move, and even helping me with the design of the characters and scenes. For example, until I did that litte fruits could be added to the tree of the Indian and Bear scene, Blanca did not stop. She asked me every single day if I had managed to do it!
Apart from how much these stories have served us, what really gives us full of satisfaction is to see how other parents use them and value them. In the years since we released 'The cloud child,' we have received support from a lot of people and entities that have made the collection worth the work, and have been recommended in many web portals and magazines about autism, attention deficit disorder, Down's syndrome and education in general. In fact, for us, this is the reason we made them available to the public. There is nothing I like better, than that a father or mother recommends our own apps to us without knowing that we have created them ... And that happens to us, constantly. "
